My Profile:-

Schools Applying to- 10 out of top 15
GMAT- 730
UG- Btech from tier 2 university (avg GPA)
Grad- MIS (4.0)
Indian in US

The posts above do give me a chill, but am sure that there is a school in my list that will look into my profile beyond the GMAT. Since I'm doing several applicant initiated interviews, December would be the judgement month for me.

It's just that people with high GMAT score are posting. Others with lower scores see these scores and decide not to post theirs.
